When you’re in a relationship, you don’t want to jump the gun. However, you also don’t want to be that person who misses opportunities to treat your loved one and express how much they mean to you.
This post is your go-to guide on on knowing those perfect times in any relationship where it’s great to give the gift of jewellery. Whether you are just starting your journey as a couple or into the more serious phases.
Top tip: It’s important to note that different jewellery items send different messages and choosing the right piece and time is essential to getting the right message across.
1. At the start
When things are still heating up, this is a new phase and likened to the ‘honeymoon period’. If an important day such as birthdays or Valentine’s Day comes during this time, don’t be shy. It’s a great time to think of something simple yet thoughtful in jewellery terms. This might mean buying your special one a pair of silver earrings. Or ask what her favourite gemstones are and choose something in her favourite colour in a cute bracelet.
A watch for graduation is also a lovely sentiment and often greatly appreciated for sentimental and practical value. If you know she is a romantic at heart, a cute pendant necklace will also be a good idea. Another nice thing is surprising her with some simple quality jewellery on your 6-month anniversary!
2. When things are heating up
So, you are getting even more comfortable with each other and you have been together for a little while now. You know her tastes and preferences style wise and can go a bit further when buying jewellery.
Depending on your budget, you might want to go down to the traditional route and go with yellow or rose golds.
If you have a bigger milestone such as a year or more, you might want to opt for earrings with diamonds in. Keeping it small still as you will want to save the best till last of course.
3. When things are sure-fire
You know she’s the one. You have suspected it for a while now but it hits you; this is a sure thing. It’s time to pull out all the stops and go for the big engagement ring. You might want it to be a surprise but these days it’s not uncommon for couples to choose the ring together. It’s also a beautiful gift if you go for something unique and customised. Serendipity Diamonds UK make custom made diamond engagement rings so make sure to check what they have on offer.
Overall, every relationship is different and when it’s the right time to give the gift of jewellery for one couple, may not be the right time for another. Ultimately, this just serves as a guideline and it’s up to you to sense when the best time is. However, women normally love jewellery no matter what time of year (WINK, WINK!) so we are pretty sure you can’t go wrong on this one.
